When I was looking for recipes for Mother’s Day and Miriam’s birthday, Miriam sent me this one. This turned out to be a fairly tricky recipe with several structural problems. Scooping out the right amount of space was very difficult. All of the eggs over flowed their avocado containers making a mess of the pan. The eggs also came out tough and leathery.

This week I am making Santa Maria tri-tip, which calls for Santa Maria-style beans. While many sites call for serving coleslaw with this meal, I could not find anything called “Santa Maria-style coleslaw.” Having grownup just a few miles away, in Santa Barbara, I decided to fill this obvious need.

Jan requested a “light” dinner, by which she meant low carbohydrates. I decided to do “South of the Border” salmon patties. This, of course, called for guacamole. Having already mixed Mexican and Northwest cuisines, I decided to take it a step further and mix grilled plums with my avocado.

I am making the Dean’s Lunch and one of the dinners is a Vegan. Jan and I finally settled on a salad with crackers and a selection of schmears. To meet the needs of the one, the many must eat Vegan—to paraphrase. Jan really likes guacamole, so I chose this as my third schmear. I have a simple recipe, but for public consumption I thought I would be a bit more elaborate.
I am having fish tacos and I wanted some guacamole to go with it. This is so simple it is barely a recipe. I know that some people really “doctor up” guacamole, but I think that a good ripe avocado just needs a bit of lime juice to prevent it from turning brown.

I wanted a cooling salad to go with my spicy jerked chicken and this one sounded like a good one. The mango does not fit into the Ketogenic diet, but Chris can give Myr his mango if he wishes, the rest should be OK for him. I replaced the original grapefruit with orange, because it is less sour and I prefer it.
